Usain Bolt adopts an abandoned cheetah cub.
A couple of things to say here:
1. No, he’s not adopting the cheetah in the Siegfried and Roy fashion: raising it on a plush pillow at his no doubt lavish Jamican home, racing it a few times around the island before breakfast (Wheaties, naturally), and then one day unexpectedly being mauled by his one-time best buddy. As entertaining a picture as that is, the cheetah (named “Lightning Bolt”) is in fact being raised at an animal orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, which is really the fair thing for everyone. Hooray!
2. How is his name BOLT?!? I still can’t get over that.
